I delight at spending time with them. I pull up and maybe there is one crow in sight, by the time I’ve turned in and parked…. they have begun to gather. They are not trusting of my big honking Nikon, so I pull out the trusty cell… and get a few snaps in before they wise up to my ruse.
Be very careful about doing things you really like. Do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you’ll lose your balance.
Look around, red is the prominent colour of the month. Red spiritually effects, stability, security, grounding, courage, action, physical and emotional survival. Red – physical energy, passion, courage, power, will and desire.
Red makes you feel passionate and energized its the warmest and most dynamic of the colours – it is said to trigger opposing emotions. Seeing so much red in the fashion outlets, I had a look in my wardrobe, not a red shirt, blouse, or top.. hmm actually I seem to be surrounded by shades of black, grey and earth colours.
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

No red in this picture but to me it is not only spiritual , and energizing, it emotes warmth and a wonderful sense of quiet that gives me strength and an inner passion to love….
Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

It’s OK! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

First I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.. I certainly appreciated hearing from you knowing my well being was being assisted by your prayers .. I can’t promise that I won’t try to take down another dead tree on my own… but I will exercise more awareness when I hear my knee snap and my leg give a whimper to PAY ATTENTION… and not try to “finish up what I started”
This will be a quickie since I can’t sit for any length of time.. the affected muscles etc. run up into my buttock.. I’ve been provided with a set of crutches which I need to even get off the bed. And friends are coming by to ensure that I “behave”, eat, etc. the dogs are being wonderful.. carefully staying out of the way when I try to manoeuvre from the bedroom to the bathroom. I’m afraid I might have to spent more time reclining with the leg up.. for another 24 hours. (sigh I’m a terrible patient, I want to find a way to get back into the woods to finish what I started!) (Ducks as Awen readies to whop me with a fish)
OK OK I promise I’ll be good (for this morning anyway ) All the medication yesterday is still making its way through my system. Later I’ll catch up on your adventures and drink in the wonderful visual presentations.
Take care everyone! Enjoy the crisp fall weather..
btw. anyone else, have WP change the font etc. on them?
In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..
What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.
The rain comes to wash away the dust, dirt and grime of the past weeks. We mortals that we are, also have a way of clearing away the “mental” debris we accumulate over the days and nights we cohabit on this planet. We pray! Whether prayer is silent, or voiced, we offer our thanks and express our gratitude for everything in our lives, whether they have been happy or challenging.
In PL, we offer our gratitude and prayer monthly with a ceremony at the church, however, I try to start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude, I offer my thanks for a good night of sleep and my thanks for presenting me with a brand new day. In the fall, there is a stir of excitement in the air when the weather starts to change, we visually see the beginning of a new season. Orange’s and bright yellows begin to appear with dashes of crimson here and there, till almost all the greens disappear and only the fall pallet is before us. Then we are blessed with a cornucopia of golds, burnt umber, rusts and the evergreens that remain show off the many variances of their colour range.
The foundation of our faith, PL Precept # 1 Life is art…. “as a living person, you interact with the people and things around you in order to express your feelings. Your life is shaped by the way you express yourself each and every day. Through your daily artistic expressions, you can create your one and only life.” It is easy to get so caught up in the chaotic energy of the world around us, that is why it is so important to remember to pray and give thanks each day for the blessing of life itself.
Our lives are our very own unique work of art. If you cut corners or miss important details, you will not be able to live up to your fullest potential. PL Precept #2 To live is to expressOne’s Self!!
I am most grateful to each and everyone of YOU, for being part of this community of “friends” who share and enjoy this world with me. I truly feel blessed and appreciate your visits and the sharing of your thoughts, stories and pictures that I get to enjoy and read… Oyashikiri…
Though we travel. . . to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with success unexpected in common hours
Henry David Thoreau
Let’s cherish the milestones of life… There are various milestones in our lives. The entrance ceremony, graduation ceremony, wedding … these important life milestones are great opportunities to change your mind, and like bamboo, people grow up at milestones.

Imagine walking through the woods, hearing water, going to explore and discovering this site. Wow. A lot of beauty has been rediscovered this year with travel restricted to places closer to home, many are revisiting the greenspaces not far from their own “doorstep*”.
New encounters can help you change. Be up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.
